Nyquist should play with Datsyuk and Flip.  I want to see if that can be a long-term line.  

 

The world has never seen the kind of stick handling and passing that a line with those three would put together.  Their zone entries would be a thing of art, their jaw dropping toe drags a gift from the heavens themselves.  It would be as if Marty St. Louis was cloned twice and unlike the movie Multiplicity, neither of the clones would be semi-retarded, and they would pass and pass so fluidly that one might be tricked into thinking that the Datsyuk-Flip-Nyquist line had somehow melded with the winds and waves of the earth into one big flowing hockey life cycle.

 

It would be the most brilliantly skilled line to never score a goal in the National Hockey league, of course.

Oh so with Cleary on that line, they will score goals?


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

This is really too bad to hear about Bert. Have alwasy supported him and will continue doing so!! Hope it's not too serious, and that he doesn't end up needing surgery. Man, GR is going to be bare soon would be nice if we could just get healthy

Your either/or reasoning is remarkable.  Thanks for playing.  Ideally I'd like to see Brunner-Datsyuk-Cleary.  Flip-Zetterberg-Tatar.  Then both lines would have more balanced scoring.  Obviously when Bert and Franzen are healthy neither Cleary nor Tatar would be in the top six.  

 

But yes if the only choices were Nyquist OR Cleary then you're right, Nyquist would be better.  Thankfully, those aren't the only two choices.

My reasoning is very good.

 

Bert shouldn't be in the top 6 and neither should Tatar.  Nyquist is not a checker but a top 6 player.  Either play him in that spot or leave him in GR.    

 

And I wouldn't split up Brunner and Hank just yet.

 

So that leaves Nyquist on that line I proposed.  Maybe you could put Franzen on the top line instead of him, but Franzen makes Datsyuk look neutered.  Zetterberg seems to handle Franzen better on his line.

I was waiting for that ending! Ice Capades without a doubt.

I work at a hospital. We get intractable back pain patients all the time. Usually when it's severe and sudden like this, it's from muscle spasm and there is no need for surgery. Usually goes away after a few days of heavy duty muscle relaxers. But who knows if that's the case here.

 

Really hoping that that's the case here.

Holland said the club hasn't relinquished hope that forward Todd Bertuzzi can return this season. Severe back pain has kept him off the ice since Feb. 1. He is riding the stationary bike.

“A week-to-10 days ago the back wasn't feeling so good. On Friday, there was optimism again,'' Holland said. “Let's give it another week-to-10 days (before exploring other options).''

No, he's not that expensive. If he never plays again then he'll languish on ir until his term expires. Save the amnesty talk for Sammy.

 I kinda like this idea....bury Bert on the IR for the next season, buyout Sammy and Colaiacovo... Nice!

we get 2 amnesty buyouts over the next 2 seasons. I agree that at least one should be a forward.

Bert should do the Wings a favor, and either hang'em up, or stay on long-term IR thus not having to use a buyout on him (can save them for Sammy & Cola).

he can't retire, we would be on the hook for his cap hit since he signed a 35+ contract. see chris pronger for example.

How does long-term injury reserve work in a situation as this?

 

Can the Wings get any cap space relief?
